Right Help, Right Time

In line with Birmingham Safeguarding Children’s Board, St Peter’s follows the refreshed threshold guidance “Right Help, Right Time” (RHRT). This framework has provided everyone at St Peter’s with clear advice about what to do and how to respond if a child and their family need extra help. The DSL, attended the required training suggested by the RHRT Multi-Agency and so have embedded the RHRT guidance within the day to day practice of the school. Staff receive training so they know that the voice of the child is at the centre of their planning, decision making and service delivery.

For further information on the materials provided by RHRT, read the following documents:
